ChannelEngine: what is the 'legacy' Merchant API key?
About this article
This article describes ChannelEngine's legacy Merchant API keys.
If you have had a ChannelEngine account for some time and need to add a new merchant API key, you might see an API key labeled Legacy when checking the Settings > Merchant API keys section.
Legacy API keys
At first there was only one Merchant API key per ChannelEngine tenant. However, with the introduction of access to mobile users and the option to create multiple API keys to grant or revoke access on an individual basis, it is now possible to add multiple API keys.
Any keys from when there was a single key per tenant have been renamed Legacy. It is possible to rename or delete this key just like any other, however, deletion is only recommended if you are sure the key is not in use for any active connection.
